Op Shop Delights

Posted by Leanne Ivanoff on


I asked myself today - Why would a fabric shop owner buy fabric from an Op Shop?

The answer to this question I thought would make a great first blog topic.

So the answer is why not!!

Sometimes you can find the best vintage fabric pieces or wool pieces just right to add to those wonderful new fabrics you have, or to use in your applique designs.

Take what I bought today, yes I have some great vintage inspired ranges in the shop but nothing beats these two fantastic pieces I picked up for the bargain price of $6 for approx 6 metres of vintage designed fabric.  After a little research I think what I have is a product developed post war by an Australian company (Caesar Fabrics Ltd) called Cesarine the “wondercloth”. It is a thick cotton cloth that is advertised as perfect for uniforms, garments and home furnishings that will not crinkle or fade.

So what is it going to be perfect for.. Well I guess you will have to tune into the next blog post to find out.

Life is short - do something creative today
